Frog Detective 3 coming later this year

Elite Dangerous Odyssey update adds shared missions and fixes bugs

Elite Dangerous Odyssey’s latest update fixes a million small bugs, and makes some major tweaks to the space sim expansion.

The Frog Detective games are short, joy-filled mysteries about a frog with a vacant smile. They’re lovely – and now there’s going to be a third one. Frog Detective 3: Corruption At Cowboy County is coming later this year, and there’s a first trailer below.


The game’s Steam page confirms this is the Frog Detective series finale. You and Lobster Cop are sent to the wild west to solve a mystery in a sheriff-less county, and uncover a sinister schme.

Summer Games Done Quick starts tomorrow

Summer Games Done Quick starts tomorrow, beginning days and days of frantic speedrunning in great games for the benefit of charity.

My favourite line on the Steam page is this: “For some reason the other games sold half a million copies.” They deserve to have sold that many because they’re simple, lovely, playful things. The first game, The Haunted Island, and its sequel, The Case Of The Invisible Wizard, are both a few quid at the moment. Nate backed me up on this in his Frog Detective 2 review, where he tells a nice anecdote about a triangle and calls the game perfectly formed.

Now come on Netflix, get on this:
